Three Christmas-themed episodes of The CBS Radio Mystery Theater, created by Himan Brown and hosted by E.G. Marshall. The first two episodes are presented exactly as aired on WBBM, Chicago in December 1978 complete with original commercials, news and even weather reports! #0191 A Very Private Miracle; 0402 A Christmas Carol I have added a third Mystery Theater episode aired on WBBM in December 1980: #1140 A Holiday Visit It also contains the original commercials. The quality is not as good because the original tape was over-modulated (too loud)

A Very Private Miracle
This is a wonderful OTR episode! Not spooky but very sweet; a great listen during the holidays. Thank you!

I have to agree with Connie here. These shows are so gripping and well-made. I have loved listening to them all my life! Thank you for making them available here. They are among the most well-made shows I've heard.

I like the program all complete
I think the Chicago ad's lend originality to the mystery theatre. Having grown up in Chicago and still living here it's nice to hear some of the old ad's aired on WBBM "Newsradio 78"

I actually prefer the episodes that include the commercials. It adds something to the listening experience. Probably just the soaky nostalgia of the aging
